Increasing prices, no raw materials availability, sky-rocketing freight costs. How can we survive 2021?
Varedo, 9th April 2021
Our CEO just publishes an article with some reflections and ideas on how to survive the challenges of 2021:

We are all aware of lead toxicity and its nasty effects on human health.
World Health Organization has identified lead as 1 of 10 chemicals of major public health concern as lead poisoning is responsible of several diseases. It is even believed lead to be primarily responsible for the collapse of the Roman Empire, since Romans used lead to build water piping and as wine sweetener!
But lead is a fantastic metal, when we are talking of metalworking, added to steels, aluminums and brasses.
Its self-lubricant properties and mildness reduce the amount of energy consumed and time required to machine any metal part and improves surface finishing with no significant effects on parts mechanical properties.
Government regulations around the world are progressively banning lead from most of its applications but still allow for reduced percentages of lead to be used in metals intended for metalworking.
At Hydronit we think forward and strongly follow sustainability principles. For this reason we have decided to pioneer, as first ones in Italy in hydraulics, research and testing of NO LEAD aluminum alloy extruded bars to manufacture our range of hydraulic manifolds.
First results are encouraging since we managed to obtain perfectly finished manifold blocks with a slight increase in machining times, by adopting latest generation robotized CNC machines, advanced Polycrystalline diamond tools and adapted cutting parameters and techniques.
Hydronit is phasing out lead from its aluminum blocks completely in a few weeks, as soon as the present stock of standard aluminum alloy is cleared, and passing on to its customers the advantages of working in a cleaner, safer environment.
Hydronit a choisi Bauma qui va présenter sa dernière création : l' Unité de puissance intelligente. Résultat d'une combinaison entre l'hydraulique et de l'électronique, le SPU est la première génération de bloc d'alimentation hydralic programmable. Son noyau est la HPS (régulateur de Process hydraulique): un module mécatronique à l'architecture de sécurité, qui intègre des capteurs, électronique et l'hydraulique dans un seul appareil, programmable avec Codesys.

Hydronit invented the first Hydraulic Compact Smart Power Unit. But… what makes it Smart?
The Smart Power Unit is a Mechatronic Module which integrates Sensors, Electronics and Hydraulics in a single device that is:
- safe (safety Architecture SIL2)
- self diagnosed (with integrated accelerometer and pressure, speed and temperature sensors)
- programmable (with CodesysTM IEC61131-3 automation software)
- powerful (12 x 2A PWM + 2 x 4A on-off outputs)
- interconnected (Ethernet, Wi-Fi, CAN bus, Hart, 26 digital / analog I/O, IoT functionalities)
- flexible (P/Q proportional or on-off circuits with or without Load Sensing)
- modular (all Hydronit compact power units parts and accessories are available)
- robust (shock and vibration resistant)
The Smart Power Unit is patented n° WO 2017/162298 A1.
